Training Philosophy:

“Your goals become my obsession; everyone that walks through the door and asks for my training expertise will get the very best of me. However, I also require that my clients give me their very best every session. The best training program is the one you’re not on and so it is important to continue to get better in every way. Strength and nutrition go hand in hand. No matter what your goals are, you have to train hard (and smart) and have the nutrition to meet the demands. You can’t out train a bad diet and you certainly can’t expect your body to change if you don’t challenge it. My job is to empower you; your job is to improve. It’s the level of your commitment to your goals and our symbiotic relationship that will make your goals happen.”
